Catalogue of attention and inclusion practices for FDP in the EU influence area

The RAISD Good Practices analysis has the intention to evaluate past and current inclusion initiatives across the European Union influence area and characterised in terms of target group, objectives, requirements, type of host community, actual results, evaluation by actors, related artefacts.
The inclusion practices are highlighting numerous connections in terms of helping, assisting, mentoring, educating, and providing services to refugees and vulnerable populations; the selection process included the identification of actor-oriented criteria that each practice should meet.

Catalogue of TAIS for VGs

Catalogue of identified TAISs as VCs with related attention and inclusion practices that are highly scored with actor-oriented criteria. It will contain existing TAIS identified in literature and practice, as well as those developed in ARUs. This adaptation constitutes a paradigm shift in FDP attention, moving from a general perspective to acknowledging the heterogeneity among FDP and the need of specific integration policies for distinctively VGs. Validation of the catalogue by the correspondence among TAISs and actual effective attention and inclusion practices for the identified VCs. Geographical and cultural adaptations to ensure target and context specific material is delivered.

TAIS IMPLEMENTATION – Action-research development

Actual implementation of TAIS using the project resources. According to the action research approach of the work methodology, they will perform the specific adaptations, and react to, the local context.

Each ARU will report on the application of the TAISs working methodology: selection, adaptations, implementation, evaluation of the impact compared with traditional practices, on addressing the needs using the criteria developed.

  • Selection of relevant local stakeholders, with a particular focus on civil society, to promote the involvement of the host community.
  • Development of specific materials (e.g. summaries of VG situation, activities and results) and activities (e.g. visits and participation) to boost their interest.

Research stories from ARUs: report and analysis

Cross-reports from ARU reports on the use of TAISs, their related problems, barriers and enablers, as well as their dependencies with contextual factors (e.g. cultural, political, normative and legal). Key elements of these stories are those related to the project results, but also reflective dimensions about their context (inclusion, anticipation, transparency and responsiveness). Research stories will include traditional reports from stakeholders using templates, but also multimedia productions of interviews with stakeholders and on-site documentations of the co-creation processes among stakeholders.

TAIS Cross-pilot workshop reports

Reports on cross-pilot workshops. They gather knowledge on TAISs application (e.g. barriers and enablers) from multiple pilots. These workshops will be also intended to facilitate exchange between scientific and societal actors. Main objective of this is to provide a critical perspective on how pilots are progressing and also to generate some initiatives on how to further improve project aspects over the duration of the project.

Evaluation criteria: actor-oriented and integrated evaluation – preliminary version

The aim of this paper is to provide a comprehensive idea about the evaluation methodology in RAISD. Like all RAISD activities, also the evaluation methodology has been developed from a participatory perspective. Consequently, the foundation of the methodology has been the evaluation criteria defined by various stakeholders in different contexts. These criteria are called actor-oriented evaluation criteria. Out of a diverse set of actor-oriented criteria, the task has been to determine integrated evaluation criteria while providing a common evaluation tool for RAISD project together with consortium partners.

TAIS EVALUATION CRITERIA: actor-oriented and integrated evaluation

This document analyses the evaluation criteria for attention and inclusion practices in different VCs. It will start with the criteria used by different types of stakeholders in those contexts. The integrated criteria are applied only to VCs and TAISs. It includes:

  • Stakeholders’ evaluation of project results (VCs, TAISs, their catalogues, and methodologies).
  • Identification of the key aspects in actors’ evaluation.
  • Characterisation of the actor-oriented evaluation criteria.
  • Identification of extreme actors’ positions on evaluation criteria.
  • Characterisation of the integrated evaluation criteria from actor-oriented evaluation criteria.
  • Validation Report of the integrated vs the actor-oriented evaluation criteria through experiments.
  • Report on the validation of the integrated vs the actor-oriented evaluation criteria in the ARU pilots.

CRIOS

The collaborative platform embodies a process architecture for the co-design and analysis activities related to the Vulnerability Contexts (VCs) and the Tailored Attention and Inclusion Strategies (TAISs) in the context of teams organized as working Action Research Units (ARUs). That process architecture is a well-structured workflow consisting of various phases that are supported by appropriate tools and methods, which guide the participation of innovation and knowledge actors through the activities.
